Does it sink in?

Just like high quality pepper always sinks to the bottom of the glass, effective communication always creates an instant connection with the intended audience, and sinks into their psyche effortlessly. The question is, does your advertising pass the test?

Pepper is called "The King of Spices", and for very good reason! Peppercorns undergo rigorous quality testing to be worthy of that epithet, and your entries will also be put through the wringer to make sure they deserve a Pepper Award!

We can smell good design

Just like the distinctive aroma of Tellicherry pepper, we can smell a great layout from a mile off! Make sure yours makes the cut.

We have a taste for wordcraft

Do your words have the flavour and punch to impress our jury? Send in your entries and find out!

We can sense the creative touch

Fresher pepper is better pepper, and you will surely gain the upper hand if your concepts are fresh and original.
